Perhaps further proof — besides their flat-out denials — that Matt Lauer and Annette Roque are still together: both are wearing their wedding bands. Lauer has been wearing his on-air on the Today Show, and Roque was spotted this morning with son Jack wearing hers. Since Roque did file for divorce (which she later withdrew) while pregnant with her third child in 2006, allegedly amid allegations of infidelity, this story seems to have taken on a life of its own.
Lauer has denied the cheating rumors and that he and his wife are separated. Incidentally, I didn’t know this was Lauer’s second marriage until recently. He was married from 1982 to 1989 to television producer Nancy Alspaugh and was also briefly engaged to a newscaster named Kristen Gesswein who he dated from 1989 to 1996.
There’s that old saying: “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” I think only time will tell if there is any truth to the original story — or if it was all made up like the Lauers claim. Let’s hope the latter.
